Reliance Jio 4G laptops reportedly in the works
Reliance Jio, the company led by Mukesh Ambani, is looking to foray into the laptop market by launching 4G laptops running on Windows 10. Their 4G feature phone called ‘JioPhone’ has already created a buzz in the Indian mobile phone market.
According to a report from Economic Times, Reliance Jio is in talks with the U.S. based chipmaker Qualcomm to launch laptops running Windows 10 with built-in cellular connections (Jio 4G) for the Indian market. Qualcomm is already in talks with Jio and Reliance Retail to bring out a 4G feature phone.
Miguel Nunes, senior director, product management, Qualcomm Technologies told Economic Times, “…we have talked to Jio. They could take the device and bundle it with data and content.”
Considering that Qualcomm powered laptops are yet to hit global markets, it may take a while before Jio launches their own 4G laptop with a SIM slot in the market.
